526 McKinley Court


Farrah Wilder & Colleen Babbel Present: 526 McKinley Court Exceptional Central San Leandro Home $549,000



This lovely 2 bedroom home, tucked away on a cul-de-sac, may be the home you’ve been looking for.

Distinguishing it from the surrounding homes are mature gardens providing a more secluded setting.  As you approach, you’ll see details and a color scheme that harken to an earlier time.

When you enter, you’ll find a spacious living room to your left with the formal dining area straight ahead. All appointed with period details, including: beautiful wood floors, curved wall accents, lovely wood windows, and charming fireplace.  Even the light fixtures, most of which have stained glass panels, complement the décor. 

Function is not sacrificed for charm. Several of the pretty light fixtures also have ceiling fans. The bathroom has both a tub and shower, which was common in the 1940s, when the home was built.  Many of the windows have wooden detachable screens.  There is an outlet on the mantle of the fireplace that is perfect for entertainment systems or holiday lights.

The kitchen also brings together charm and function. A skylight and corner windows add light and cheer. There are stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher.  A nook with a desk provides a convenient workspace.

Just off of the dining room are French doors, bringing in light and air and offering a connection to the sweet back yard.                                     

What also sets this home apart from so many others is the versatile studio in the back yard. Whether for work, hobbies, play or storage, this bonus building makes a great home even better.

Additional conveniences include an attached garage, great laundry room with space for storage and a huge attic space with potential for storage.

Although tucked away, this home is just blocks from schools, shopping and restaurants.  For commuters, BART and freeways aren’t far. Nature lovers will enjoy proximity to Lake Chabot.



San Leandro

San Leandro is a small city just south of Oakland. Its east side stretches up into the hills of the East Bay Regional Park District. The west side is flatter and has the advantage of the San Francisco Bay shoreline, public golf course, and marina.

Homes for sale in San Leandro can be traced through the decades -- from the 1910s to the present day. A wide variety of architectural styles is found in north San Leandro. Dramatic, hillside contemporary homes, many of which feature expansive bay and canyon views, are the hallmark of the Bayo Vista neighborhood. Charming, older homes sit along the winding streets of the Estudillo Estates and Broadmoor Districts. Most of the city's ranch-style homes lie towards the Marina, along with some newer, custom-home developments.

San Leandro is proud of its small-town feel and boasts a Wednesday farmers' markets, several annual festivals, and an increasing number of locally owned restaurants and coffee houses. San Leandro’s commute options are excellent: it has its own Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, transbay buses, and easy access to Interstate 880 and Interstate 580 for trips to the Silicon Valley or San Francisco.
